Gibson collectors, here is a different piece…

50th Anniversary – Gold Book 1959 Les Paul with a Monster Flame Top!

1 of 500 Limited Edition First Run, only 250 RARE Dark Burst R9s were made for the Fiftieth Anniversary in 2009 this one is #167.  
This guitar has a monster top looks amazing from all angles, simply gorgeous. This is hands down one of the best looking Dark Burst I actually have ever seen. 

This R9 is the epitome of Gibson craftsmanship and is just perfect in every way. This fifty nine sounds absolutely incredible loaded with BB 1&2’s and is wonderfully resonant when not plugged in. This R9 is perfectly balanced and comes in at a very comfortable and tonally appealing eight.8 lbs. 
A lot of people find that eight.8 – 9 lbs is the Gibson sweet spot, having owned a lot of Historic’s, I couldn’t agree more.
This rare beauty has been collector owned and only played a couple of hours. 

This instrument is in MINT CONDITION! it doesn’t have a single ding, dent, scratch, or scuff it only shows some very light polishing swirls that can only be seen at the right angle in the right light. 

Priced to sell, I’m offering this instrument 1,500-2k less than the Gold Books I’ve found on-line for a short clean sale.

This Fiftieth R9 is original and completely unmolested. 
Includes every bit of candy you could want including the coveted Leather Bound Limited Edition Gold COA!
Don’t hesitate to ask questions, and good luck.
